Half of the sites have just recently reopened after total renovation. All the new sites are huge. Some are over 100' long. Every new site has 50 amps and sewer hookups. Many are on the waterfront. The sites in the older section are heavily wooded and don't yet have sewer. They are scheduled for update soon, also. This will be a real showplace when the other half is completed.
Beautiful park with lots of walking trails and a great place for a short stay. Only one bathhouse for the entire park. On Alabama football weekends the place is filled with fans, there to attend the games. The gate is locked at 10 PM regardless of the situation when practically everyone is there for the ballgame. For night games this makes it difficult for all. I even offered to give the attendants a combination lock to use for one night. The walk from the gate is over a mile on a very dark road. Cars have to be left along the road with no security. There is a permanent resident who runs a shuttle service, which is probably the reason for being so inflexible about the 10 PM rule. Corps of Engineers could fix this if they so desired. Somebody needs to use reason.
Beautiful location. Crowded sites. Many of the sewer sites were up on a hillside where we would have a difficult time leveling. Too many sites looked like they were occupied by permanent residents with junk and old plastic tarps making them look very unsightly. Store/office closed at 4 PM rather than stagger the employee work hours to keep it open later. There was no trash collection site in the campground. After walking around for 20 minutes with trash I found out we had to use dumpsters at a boat launch, about a half mile away from the campground.
Made three night reservation for a waterfront site based on the Reserve America map. Got here and found the site very unlevel, a mud pit and blocked from view of Seneca Lake by a tree buffer. Fortunately it didn't rain so we left after two nights and forfeited the third. Roadway into the park needs work. Would not go back.
Employees were nice but disorganized. First site assigned to us was already occupied. Pull-through campsite was not big rig friendly. Very small sites with little privacy. Cable TV was barely viewable. Had trouble with low voltage. On 30 amp system the voltage dropped to 107 volts when AC was running. Pool area seemed to be nice and I guess it was kid friendly, but we were just looking for an overnight stay. Will look for another place if we pass through Wytheville again.
The only thing this campground has going is location. The grounds are poorly maintained. The roads are narrow and full of ruts. Large stones and other useless obstructions are throughout the park making it hazardous to maneuver a 37 foot fifth wheel trailer. Ditches, stones and saplings make backing into campsites difficult. Overhead trees will damage your roof accessories. They have no restrictions about how loud a generator can be. The people next to us had a large construction generator and when I complained to rangers they said I could move. I will not return until they decide to make some improvements.
This is a small, but very nice campground. The owners are great hosts. You feel like a guest in a 5 star resort. Melissa met us at the entrance, led us to the site and helped us back in. Very convenient to downtown Helen. Will certainly go back to Creekwood on our next trip to the area. Wi-Fi was not yet operating but owners say it soon will be.
Great staff. Very helpful and friendly. They helped us a lot with planning and reservations for activities during our stay. All lots were nice and level, some shaded and some in the open. The pool area was clean and well kept. Store was well stocked. We just stumbled on this campground without reservations, but plan to visit again on our next trip.
Spent one night here based on the very high ratings in the TL and Woodall guides. Employees were nice enough, but the campground was a dump. The pull thru site we were assigned was poorly designed and difficult to access with a fifth wheel. There were full timers right in the middle of the campground with unsightly junk and clothes lines. The advertised pool was one of those round, four foot, above ground backyard models. There were several old broken down cars and several old rusty trailers stored in the middle of the campgground. In spite of the negative points, there were a few nice sites located on the San Juan River. This place definitely didn't deserve the ratings.
